Results for "Horizontal"


  • DarkHorse

    DarkHorse is a bioinformatic method for rapid, automated identification and ranking of phylogenetically atypical proteins on a genome-wide basis. It works by selecting potential ortholog matches from a reference database of amino acid sequences, then using these matches to calculate a lineag...

  • NearHGT

    Horizontal gene transfer (HGT), the transfer of genetic material between organisms, is crucial for genetic innovation and the evolution of genome architecture. Existing HGT detection algorithms rely on a strong phylogenetic signal distinguishing the transferred sequence from ancestral (vertically...

  • Alien_Hunter : prediction of putative Horizontal Gene Transfer (HGT) events

    Alien_hunter is an application for the prediction of putative Horizontal Gene Transfer (HGT) events with the implementation of Interpolated Variable Order Motifs (IVOMs). An IVOM approach exploits compositional biases using variable order motif distributions and captures more reliably the local ...

  • HGT-Finder: A New Tool for Horizontal Gene Transfer Finding and Application to Aspergillus genomes

    HGT-Finder: (i) can be used for HGT detection in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, (ii) can report a statistical P value for each gene to indicate how likely it is to be horizontally transferred, and (iii) is fully automated (requires minimal human intervention), as well as very ea...

  • DarkHorse: a method for genome-wide prediction of horizontal gene transfer

    A new approach to rapid, genome-wide identification and ranking of horizontal transfer candidate proteins is presented. The method is quantitative, reproducible, and computationally undemanding. It can be combined with genomic signature and/or phylogenetic tree-building procedures to improve accu...
